Inspired by the BG3 trailers, I have recently started replaying BG saga from scratch (for the 20th time...).
I have decided to play Kensai / Mage dual-classed at the 13th level. I have also been playing solo (once re-activated Kensai class, until then I was playing in a 2-member party).
As you can imagine I have been gaining experience extremely quickly. I have reached... the 41st Mage level in Hell in BG2.
* no cheat codes...
* ... other than XP CAP remover
I think that starting somewhere from level 25, the leveling up didn't provide any benefits other than modest +2 HP. I was getting new levels, however, it didn't "improve" my character. I have also noticed that to level up from 2X level till 40th there was a constant XP of 375k required.
This was true until the 40th level, where I needed to get around 1.5M XP to level up to the 41st. I assumed that once I would do that, I will regain "lost benefits" that I haven't acquired from the 25th (?) to the 41st level.
In Hell, I have used Deck of Many things and drawn a "THRONE" card in which my party (solo game) received 1M XP. This was enough for me to level up to the 41st.
My assumption of regaining "lost benefits" was correct, e.g. my THAC0 decreased from -10/-10 to -18/-18 (celestial fury + crom faeyr).
However, ... it seems to me that my Mage class has been de-activated and right now I cannot cast spells.
Funny thing is that after I have reached level the 41st, I have info that to reach the "next level" I need to gain "-1 XP".
Of course, I understand that this is an unusual situation caused by the XP cap remover. Nevertheless, I would like to get my spells back.
Do you have any ideas about how to solve that problem? I would be grateful for your help.
